D-Link's DGS-1100 series provide an affordable solution for SOHOs and Small and Medium Businesses as well as enterprise deployment, such as in branch offices and meeting rooms that require simple network management. There are 4 switches in the series supporting Power-over-Ethernet with 2 of the switches in the offering high-power-budget PoE for businesses looking to power VoIP phones, wireless access points or network cameras. Advanced management features, diagnostic and troubleshooting tools, and energy efficient technologies provide a flexible solution to suit your networking requirements.
The DGS-1100 series supports Auto Surveillance VLAN (ASV) which ensures the quality of real-time video for monitoring and control without compromising the transmission of conventional network data. You can also access in real-time vital information on your surveillance network such as surveillance topology and device status as well as PoE power and network bandwidth utilization.
Auto voice VLAN and bandwidth control
The DGS-1100 series supports Auto Voice VLAN, which are best suited for VoIP deployments. This enhances the VoIP service by automatically placing voice traffic from an IP phone to an assigned VLAN. With higher priority and individual VLAN, these features guarantee the quality and security of VoIP traffic. Bandwidth control can reserve bandwidth on a per port basis for important functions that require larger bandwidth or have high priority.
DGS-1100 series is equipped with advanced security features such as Static MAC, storm control, and IGMP snooping. Static MAC allows users to create a MAC whitelist for specific ports, helping administrators limit network access to authorized devices only. Storm control monitors broadcast, multicast, or unknown unicast traffic and will start blocking or discarding packets which could flood the network when the defined threshold is exceeded. IGMP snooping is able to reduce the loading of L3 multicast routers and save bandwidth in network throughput.
The DGS-1100 series features loopback detection and cable diagnostics to help network administrators find and solve network problems quickly and easily. Loopback detection is used to detect loops created by a specific port and automatically shut down the affected port. The cable diagnostics feature is designed for network administrators to quickly examine the quality of the copper cables, recognize the cable type, and detect cable errors.
Easy to deploy
The DGS-1100 series supports an intuitive D-Link network assistant utility and a web-based management interface. The D-Link network assistant utility allows customers to discover all switches in the D-Link Smart Managed Switch family within the same L2 network segment. With this utility, users do not need to change the IP address of their PC, which also makes the initial setup of the Smart Managed Switches quick and easy. Switches within the same L2 network segment that are connected to the user's PC are displayed on-screen for instant access. This allows for extensive switch configuration and basic setup of discovered devices, including password changes and firmware upgrades. The graphic web-based management interface provides a user-friendly interface that enables network administrators to remotely control their network down to the port level.
